REPORT. 



And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name, receiveth me." 



In presenting their seventh Annual Report, the managers of 
the Protestant Infants' Home feel it their painful duty to notice, 
first, the death of their late firm friend and benefactor, David 
Mackay, Esq., who, from the very birth of the institution, down 
to the day of his death, evinced both by word and deed such a 
burning interest in its welfare. In fact he may be said to have 
been its founder as well as its President ; and it is only justice 
to his memory, to say, that the success of our efforts have been 
largely due to his indefatigable exertions. Ever anxious to 
do his full duty in relieving and caring for the wants, both tem- 
poral and spiritual, of the inmates, and all concerned in the 
management, he labored from year to year without looking for 
the approbation of his neighbors so much as the fulfilment of his 
duty to humanity. "Of him it may be truly said, to do good was 
instinctive. It will be years, if ever, before his name will 
cease to be remembered, his disinterested work in behalf of the 
inmates and friends of the Home forgotten. 

We cannot proceed farther without noticing the retirement 
from the important office of first Directress, of our ever faithful 
friend Mrs. Baylis. For years she has gone in and out among 
us, and by her energetic efforts and keen business qualifications, 
mitigated in no small degree our anxieties and responsibilities. 
Constant in her attendance upon all our meetings, and always 
wise in her counsels, she imparted a measure of strength and 
confidence to our deliberalions and work which have sensibly 
cheered and sustained us in our embarrassments. In the new 
field to which she has gone, like the one she has just left, there 



6 



will doubtless always be found ample scope for the exercise of 
her intelligent mind and charitable heart, and may God bless 
her labors in the future, as they have been in the past, in what- 
ever direction her sympathies and talents may lead her. Our 
good friend Mrs. Scott consented to fill her place temporarily, 
and to all who know her it is sufficient to mention her name to 
ensure confidence that her work has been well done. 

Ey the resignation of Mrs. Ritchie, our head nurse, a vacancy 
occurred which has been filled by the appointment of Mrs. 
McFarlane. 

Matters in reference to the building fund remain in nearly 
the same state in which they were left last year. At the instiga- 
tion of our Advisory Board, exertions have been made, however, 
to collect instalments of subscriptions to meet payments due on 
the land. The widespread financial depression from which our 
own good city, in common with all other business centres upon 
this continent, has been suffering, has rendered it inexpedient to 
attempt the construction of the building we have in contempla- 
tion. But the managers are not without hope that before many 
months are over, circumstances will admit of a renewal of attempts 
to secure so desirable an object. 

It will be seen by reference to the statement attached, that as 
much attention to economy has been enforced as was compatible 
with our means, and we feel like congratulating ourselves upon 
the fact that although we have not accomplished all that we 
could have desired, we are not in debt. 

Clergymen from the different churches have kindly given us 
the benefit of religious services on the Sabbath, until the epi- 
demic of whooping cough, from which our children have been 
suffering, put an end to it. 

The death rate, it will be noticed, is less this year than usual, 
while more than an average number of children have been 
adopted. 

We regret to have to state that, owing to the epidemic just 
alluded to, numerous applicants for admission have been refused. 
We have felt it our duty to steadily decline, for some time past, 
to take the risks of exposure, unless in rare and exceptional 
cases. To illustrate what is here meant by the words " exceptional 
cases," an instance may be referred to. A clergyman sent us a 



7 



note stating that a woman confined in the jail was so maltreating 
her infant as to imperil its life. The alternative of certain death 
from neglect and ill treatment on the one hand, and the risk of 
exposure to the whooping-cough on the other, presented itself, 
and it was decided in favor of the latter. The child was received. 

In the month of June an entertainment called the Nepeiana Ex- 
hibition, was held in the Victoria Rink, for the benefit of the 
Home. Children from within as well as from without the institution 
were exhibited, together with numerous articles interesting to 
the little ones. Although not remarkable for financial success, 
the result was considered indirectly to have more than compensa- 
ted for the expense and trouble. In the autumn, the Revd. 
Messrs Carmichael and Wells gave lectures at the Mechanics' 
Hall, for the benefit of the Home. In both instances the 
lectures were well attended by the friends of our charge, and, 
as might be expected from the reputation of the learned 
lecturers, they were well entertained. While grateful for the 
assistance of the two reverend gentlemen, the managers would 
take this opportunity of expressing their thanks to Mr. Prowse and 
the ladies and gentlemen who furnished music upon the occasions 

The legacies of $400 from the late John Pratt, Esq., and $50 
from the late Mr. Swanston, were timely and thankfully received 

At the risk of being called tedious by those who have been 
in the habit of perusing our annual reports, but at the same 
time anxious that every opportunity for information in reference 
to our noble institution should be furnished the charitable pub- 
lic, we have deemed it best to refer once more to our objects and 
aims. Prominently among these are the prevention of child 
desertion on the part of Protestant mothers, and neglect of their 
offspring.' 

Children from the tender age of nine days only to five years 
are admitted. Upon their reaching that limit they are trans- 
ferred to other institutions. 

Indigent widowed mothers, with their infants ; mothers whose 
husbands, from sickness and poverty, are unable to care for 
their children, or those who from other preventable or unpre- 
ventable causes have failed to support them, are received. 

Unfortunate unmarried females, with their infants, are shel- 
tered and provided for, but only in their first offence. Each 



8 



mother is compelled to nurse her own and one other infant. We 
always endeavor to get her to come in with her child ; but failing 
this, she is followed up closely, and made to pay monthly in pro- 
portion to her abilities. 

Another salient feature of our charity is our constant watch- 
ful desire to get our little ones adopted by respectable as well 
as responsible parties, and we have pleasure in stating, since the 
opening of the institution, forty-one have been adopted. They 
are seldom, if ever, lost sight of afterwards, and we have 
valid reasons for congratulating ourselves upon our success in 
placing them. Our interest in them by no means ceases at the 
expiration of their stay with us. 

Before concluding this report, it is but an act of simple justice 
to refer to the very efficient manner in which our Matron has 
discharged her duties. At times her labors have seemed per- 
haps excessive, but she has always been found equal to the 
occasion, and cheerfully and satisfactorily performed her work. 

The different nurses, too, merit the approbation which all 
connected with the Home cordially extend to them. 

To the several medical gentlemen, who have given us their 
professional services gratuitously, we are especially indebted. 
Without their generous assistance and advice, we feel confident 
our report would have been far less assuring. 

Special thanks are likewise due the Advisory Board, for their 
devotion to our interests, also to the proprietors of the Witness 
and Star for tangible aid, and particular mention should be made 
of our good fortune in securing so desirable a gentleman as 
James Hutton, Esq., to succeed our late President. 

Last, but not least, our gratitude is due those kind friends 
who have supplied the necessary pecuniary assistance to meet 
our expenses. We discover in these acts a substantial pledge of 
their good wishes in our feeble efforts to alleviate the wants and 
sufferings of our fellow creatures. 

And now, humbly bowing in thankfulness to the great archi- 
tect of the universe for all favors received, and recognizing fully 
Our Saviour's injunction to care for the little ones, we desire to 
respectfully, but modestly, submit our seventh annual report. 

D. M. DAVIS, 

Secretary.

To the Members of Corporation of the Protestant Infant J Home. 

Ladies and Gentlemen, 

Your Medical Board have much pleasure in presenting the following seventh 
Annual Report of the medical affairs of the Protestant Infants' Home. 

There were forty-five infants remaining in the Home at the beginning of the 
year, and ninety-two have been received into the Home since that time, making 
a total of 137 that have been under the medical care or supervision of the Board 
during the year just closed. 

During the year, thirty of the infants died, being a death rate of 21.5 per 

cent. 

Of the nursing infants, thirteen were wet-nursed and eleven fed by means of 
bottles. 

The numbers that died in each month were as follows : — 

In April 7 

May 2 

June 2 

July 5 

August 1 

September 2 

October 3 

November 1 

December 4 

January I 

February o 

March 2 

Total 30 

The ages of those that died, were — 

Under one month of age 7 

Two months of age 3 

Three months of age 2 

Four months of age 7 

Five months of age 2 

Six months of age 1 

Eleven months of age 1 

Twelve months of age 3 

Over twelve months of age 4 

Total 30 

More than two-thirds of the infants that died were under six months of age. 
The deaths took place from the following causes : — 

Pneumonia 3 

Consumption (very ill when admitted) 2 

Convulsions from Teething 2 

Syphilis 2 

Infantile Debility 11 

Whooping-Cough 8 

Teething 2 

Total 30 



10 



In the end of June whooping-cough commenced amongst the children in the 
Home, and continued to affect them throughout the summer, autumn and winter. 
Thirty-five (35) of the children, amongst whom were many of the youngest 
infants, suffered from it. All of those that died from it were either wet-nursed or 
weaned. 

Two cases of small-pox occurred in infants under one year of age, that had 
been only three days in the Home. Both "of these were sent at once to the civic 
small-pox Hospital. One of them died, and the other recovered, and returned 
to the Home. 

The children and other inmates of the Home were systematically vaccinated. 

Every endeavor was made to maintain the hygienic conditions of the Home in 
as perfect a state as the unsuitable arrangements of the house would allow. It is 
the sanguine hope of the Medical Board that the Protestant public will second 
their efforts on behalf of these helpless waifs by providing, ere long, a building for 
the Home, of the kind recommended by your Board on a former occasion. The 
civil rights, or at least their claim on Christian charity, of this unfortunate class 
of infants should not be overlooked, even though other more notorious civil 
rights cases share the attention of the Protestant community. 

The large percentage of deaths from what appears amongst the causes of 
death as infantile debility, and from inflammatory diseases of the lungs, proves 
the unsuitable and unsanitary condition of the Home, and shows the fatal want of 
proper means of ventilation. If the doors and windows are closed, the air becomes 
vitiated, and marasmus or debility is induced, and if these apertures are opened, 
draughts are produced that cause colds and more severe inflammatory disorders. 
Proper ventilating shafts should be provided, by means of which the vitiated 
atmosphere might be gradually and insensibly removed, to make room for a sup- 
ply of warm fresh air. 

Your Board desire to express their appreciation of the constant and kind at- 
tention of the matron and chief nurse to the many little sufferers who have been 
under their care in the Home. 

Your Board, in their labors on behalf of the little patients in the Home, have 
been most politely and materially seconded by the ladies of the Committee of 
Management. They would solicit not only the substantial aid, but also the kind 
sympathy of the Protestant part of the community, for the many nurses, who, by 
their kind offices, save the lives and administer to the comfort of their little com- 
panions in misfortune and friendlessness. 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the Medical Board, 

JOHN BELL, A.M., M.D., 

Secretary .
